Cognitive bias can limit our thinking. It is innate to all of us—hard-wired shortcuts our brains make unconsciously—and therein lies the potential problem. When we become aware of these shortcuts and assumptions, we can question them. Unpack them. Find what’s hidden. Uncover ideas that were overlooked. See new paths to innovation.


First, the team establishes a safe environment for exploring feelings—both individually and as a team. Participants then learn about the different ways cognitive bias can influence their work.

Once they are aware of cognitive bias, participants examine past and current work situations to identify how bias shows up. This leads to a set of actions that will help them achieve their innovation goals.
